EVENT POSTPONED: New date coming soon

Due to the poor weather forecast between now and event day, Bubble Rush – York has been postponed.  

There are currently yellow weather warnings in place for the north of England, with heavy rain and thunderstorms forecast – including on event day.  Following discussions with the Racecourse and the City of York Council we have decided that we cannot run Bubble Rush as planned on Saturday 7th August. 

We are sorry to disappoint everyone who had signed up, especially those of you who have been fundraising for our charity partner, Marie Curie.  But the health and safety of everyone taking part in, and working at, Bubble Rush is always our priority, and so we hope you understand why we have come to this decision.  

We are now in discussion about reorganising the event,  but currently this depends on availability at the Racecourse.  As soon as we are able to share a new date we will send everyone an email with more information. In the meantime thank you for bearing with us while we get the new date sorted.

Bubble Rush is a fun run with a difference – lots of colourful, soapy bubbles!
You’ll start in a sea of foam and then take on four different coloured bubble stations, where foam canons create an incredi-bubble 4ft bubble bath!

Don’t worry if you’re not a runner!
It’s not a race! You can run, walk, toddle or dance your way around the family-friendly course. The event isn’t timed, so you’re not racing against anyone and there’s no time limit.

Bubble Rush is for everyone!
Bubble Rush is perfect for families and groups of all ages and abilities. The course is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, and there’s no minimum or maximum age limit.

The course is two laps of 2.5km, meaning that you’ll go through each bubble station twice – for  DOUBLE the bubbly fun!

Keeping our bubblers safe

Health and safety is our number one priority, and in 2021 it’s never been more important.

Please be assured that we will be following Government guidance, local requirements and events industry best-practice to bring Bubble Rush to York and keep our staff and participants safe.  

We recommend that you join the Facebook event for Bubble Rush – York so that you receive all the latest news and updates about the arrangements for event day straight to your timeline.
